‘Face up’ to the puzzle and all will be revealed.

A property of the shapes is sequentially increasing by one.

Answer = 4

The answer is 4 because the first shape has 1 face, the second 2, the third 3, so the answer must be the shape with 4 faces, which is answer 4.

Make sure to count the balls you can’t see but are contained within the full stack.

The base of the stack contains 16 balls.

Answer = 30

The base is 16 balls.  The second row 9.  The third 4 and then 1 at the top. You might be tempted to think the base is a triangular shape made up of 10 balls, but the stack is too wide for that to be the case.

Answer = 50 (trust me)

The answer is nothing to do with the answers from questions 1-4.

Closely examine all over the cards from puzzles 1-4 and you can piece together the number.

Answer = 3

PTO stands for Please Turn Over. If you turn the cards of puzzles 1-4 over and look a the back of each, you will be able to see a faint grey outline on each.  When the four cards are put together the reverse sides fit together like a jigsaw to make an outline of the number 3.

Answer = 5

The cryptogram reads: Look hard and you’ll see the number you need is two plus three

Think how many games Hilda must have won to be three pennies up from her original starting amount of 10.

Don’t forget to add together the number of games each won

The answer is 7. Hilda must have won 5 games to be three pennies up from her original amount of 10. Plus the two games Osbert won = 7 games in total.

It’s easier if you start from the centre rather than trying to work backwards!

Exit 3

…a deer, a female deer.

tink it trough

The answer is 9. ‘Doe’ plus ‘zen’ = dozen = 12. ‘Tree’+’H’=Three.  12-3=9.

Don’t just guess! Only fill in the shapes that can’t be anything else.

The squares with 9 can only be one shape.

The answer is 4. When you successfully complete the grid a 4 will emerge in the centre, made out of all the shapes one square thick.

Follow the tips on the back! Also, the card should be held landscape, not portrait.

3+2+3=8.

Before an ape eats a banana, it must first peel it.

The answer may not be hidden within puzzle 9, but somewhere else…

Then to decode write down the letter in each circle in this order 8-5-2-3-6-1-4-7. It will spell forty two. The number you need is the 2.

Start by folding in half both ways to make up four squares.

Now fold the four corners to the middle.

The answer is 5.  If you fold the four corners inwards, then fold them back out again half-way, it create the number 5.

One of the matches will need to be placed here

The answer is 2 (there are multiple ways to complete the puzzle. Above is one of them. The answer to all of them is 2).

Take a step back and look at the bigger picture

Consider what makes a cube a cube

The answer is 26 because you have to add 16 more cubes to one face to make it a 4×4 cube. Currently it is 3×4. Then you add 10 for the other missing blocks.

Don’t throw away the puzzle pack…

Follow the rainbow

If you use the string from the puzzle pack to thread through the holes in the colour order on the word ENIGMA it will reveal the number 4

In this cryptogram each number represents a letter.  You must work out what letter each number must be.

1=S

9=E

4=T

3=H

Here's one more to get you going...

14= R

15 = P

The cryptogram reads:

Move around the grid using the compass as your guide, but only travel one square at a time.

The answer is 6. Starting in the grid you must follow the directions on the compass by moving one square at a time. The symbol you finish on is 6.

Each word must face another word. A good starting point is to place the central 4 pieces in a square. They are they pieces with a word on each side.

Each combination is a well know pairing, so if one pairing you have feels tenuous or random then it is wrong.

Once laid correctly the letters in the centre spell out ‘Ten subtract three’ = 7

 

Join the dots...or the shapes rather...

Each shape spells out a symbol/number. 5+2-1 = 6

CUCUMBER-CU=CUMBER (C=N) = NUMBER

THE NUMBER THAT YOU NEED IS TWENTY SIX SUBTRACT EIGHTEEN = 8

You must use the key to fix the position of the cypher

Once in the correct position, you can decode the capitalised letters to the lower case ones

If you line up the capital D to the lower case g, then decode the letters, it spells out ONE PLUS FOUR = 5

The lines are your first clue. Make sure you use them.

Together we are greater than the sum of our parts. Bring us together.
